A project to develop and test a clinical scorecard for St Christopher's Hospice, Sydenham, in collaboration with the hospice. In addition to publish a manual for other hospice and specialist palliative care services wishing to develop local clinical scorecards.

Overview

Objectives

  • To identify key candidate themes for the clinical scorecard, and reach consensus on four themes.
  • To identify possible specific quality indicators (structure, process and outcome) for each theme and to establish those for which reliable and valid data can already be collected (for example from the Minimum Data Set).
  • To investigate methods to collect data for the remaining indicators by, for example
    - adding to the administrative data routinely collected by hospices and specialist palliative care services
    - using a patient-focused outcome measure
    - using a hospice and specialist palliative care service-specific post-bereavement questionnaire.
  • To investigate the acceptability of the draft scorecard to service users, staff, volunteers and commissioners.
  • To develop a manual describing the process of developing the scorecard, the outcome measures developed as part of it, and the final scorecard, for use by other hospice and specialist palliative care services.
